Goddess Card Nov. 23

November 22, 2009

 We just saw this card last week but maybe we all need a reminder that things go with ebb and flow and the Universe provides!!!!!!!!

 
Goddess Sedna- Infinite Supply- You are supplied for today and all of your tomorrows. This is an abundant universe filled with enough for everyone.  This card is about giving and receiving and finding the balance of the two. If you only give you feel drained and if you only receive you won’t enjoy what you have.
  
Finding the balance in ones life can sometimes be a hard task to take on. Sometimes it is best to sit quietly with ourselves and find out what true balance is. In meditation you stop and listen to the silence and find the balance within. This will help you find the balance in your life. Find the ebb and flow within yourself and then you can better serve yourself, your, family and friends and the universe. Remember there is enough for us all especially if we all find the balance. Start today by saying “The universe provides for my every need”
  
The Goddess Sedna is connected to the sea, so sit by some water or do a meditation to the sounds of running water or a water fall to help you connect with this beautiful Goddess!
May the love of the Goddess Be with you!!!!!!

Mother Mary – Expect a Miracle! Have faith that your prayers have been and are being answered!!  Faith is the light that illuminates your pathway .Without faith the future looks very frightening.  Don’t  give up hope on yourself or others.Keep the candle of faith burning in your soul!
 
This is my absolute favorite card in Doreen Virtue’s Goddess Oracle Deck. It reminds me to never give up!! Which is already such a part of my soul! Mary is my patron Goddess. She is the light in the deepest dark. Just like The Beatles song about her. “Let it be” they really got it right, Mary is the moveable mover and she helps us all with more than you could ever know!  She is my confidant and the one I turn to for the smallest of things and the biggest of things.
 
Take some time to get to know Mary, she will be the guiding light in the dark!! You can truly expect a miracle today!! Look for Mary in many places in your life today. I know she will show up, pay attention and look for her in your life everyday!! Take a moment and breathe and meditate and ask Mary what her message for you is today!
 
May the hope, faith, care, kindness and unconditional love of Mary be with you all today!!!

Goddess Yemanya- Golden Opportunity – Important doors are opening for you right now. Walk through them.
Life moves in waves, timing is everything, so when an opportunity presents itself you must dive in at the moment.
  
Take a risk, it just may pay off. Sometimes we like to stay where things are “safe” and “comfortable”, but sometimes that is no always the best choice for our souls journey. Where can you take your golden opportunity and meet your souls needs?
 
Meditate with Yemanya and ask the Goddess to help you find your golden opportunity! Do it today!!!
 
May the love of the Goddess be with you!!!!!!!!

Goddess Card March 20th

Goddess Mary Magdalene- Unconditional Love – Love yourself, others, and every situation – no matter what the outward appearances maybe. I am one with the Divine, just as you are, and it is here I choose to reside. I choose  to do my work from the higher consciousness, where love reigns supreme. Focus on the good you can find in people.

 
This is one of my favorite Goddess cards. For me it is the truth to my soul and the key to my being. This is what I strive for everyday! I believe that we all need to look upon each other with unconditional love. There is a light inside us all and sometimes we all have to look to find that within each other. It is very sad to me when some souls turn away from the light that is truly there for us. Yes, it is hard to be away from the Goddess, the Divine source. When you are in her arms and feel her love you can’t help but be moved and brought to the highest high, safest place, and have the most joyous feelings of love and light in your heart. So yes, being down here on this earth can be very hard. The way we miss our mother and that safe place can leave some of us very lost and very torn. So those of us who remember or truly keep her alive inside of us need to reach out and help the others remember. You don’t know a person till you walk a mile in their shoes, I don’t remember who said that, but I know that it is true. What I find is helpful sometimes is to put yourself in their shoes as best you can and look at them from that angle. Sometimes when you do that you get to meet an amazing person and find a friend!!
May the Love of the Goddess be with you!!!!

Goddess Card for Jan 28th

January 28, 2009
Goddess Aine – Leap of faith- Take a risk and put your heart’s true desire into action. Procrastinating about your dreams won’t make them go away. Neither will it make them happen. Make a decision and then the universal doors will open and help you attain your goals.
 
Sometimes we all need to just take that leap of faith. When you are ready call on the Goddess Aine she will help lead your way!! Indecision leads to stagnation and that leads to our souls not perfecting. We all need to keep moving, learning, growing and allowing our soul to perfect and become all that we can be.
 
Take your leap of faith today!!!
May the love of the Goddess be with you always!

Goddess Oonagh – Easy Does It – There is no need to hurry or force things to happen, Everything is occurring in perfect timing. Long time relationships take time. this level of devotion comes from a place of deep loving and concern.   Reach out and take action so that loved ones know that you deeply care about them.

 
Everything has natural rhythms and cycles. We can’t always pick the pace of things. But we can be sure to let those we care about them that we truly do. As the old saying goes “Actions DO speak louder than words.”  I know that it means something when you say you care for someone, but it means soooo much more when you show them. Take your time and think of a way to truly let those you love know that you love them.
 
May the love of the Goddess be with you all today!!!!!

Meal Blessings and Multi-Faith Gatherings By: Lisa Nieves

January 2, 2009

A major factor in most holiday celebrations and gatherings is food.  This provides an exceptional opportunity to create a truly harmonious occasion

Food preparation can be more than just making something to eat; it can be magical!  One of the really nice things about the winter holidays is that almost everyone is embracing their faith.  With carefully chosen words the following can be done aloud even with a multi-faith group.  The spirit of the holidays is to be thankful and to honor the Divine, the Universal Energy, however the individual interprets.  Actively being mindful is always a positive thing.

Show respect and thanks for the animals and plants that sacrificed themselves (however involuntary) so that you and your family may live on.  You can give thanks for the farmers and harvesters and processors, etc. for their part.  Give thanks to the Divine for making it all possible.  Taking this time to honor the various elements helps banish any negative energy that may be associated with the food and that the preparation is done with respect and love.

Before beginning to prepare any meal take a moment to clear away any negativity that might be lurking in your mind and/or body.

Wash your hands and visualize the negativity flowing down the drain with the sudsy water.

Take a few deep, cleansing breaths and ground and center yourself.

Gather the ingredients and utensils and be conscious of the energies each item adds to the meal.

Send positive and healthy energy into the food and the utensils you plan to use to prepare it.

Visualize the food returning that positive, healthy, harmonious energy to all that partake in the meal.

Many faiths prefer a blessing to be spoken at the table once everyone has gathered.  Ask everyone to grasp hands with their neighbor as a showing of togetherness and speak a simple blessing or if there is an elder or a particularly ‘Faithful’ member among you, honor him/her by allowing him/her to speak the blessing in his/her chosen fashion.  If neither of these actions are feasible, then simply hold your hands, palm facing down over your plate or table and make a silent wish for blessing.

If  saying a meal blessing is awkward or undesirable by some you can make a general thank you over the meal and suggest a moment of silence to provide an opportunity to give thanks in a more personal way.

Here’s an adaptation of a greeting card verse that does this beautifully.  This can also be used as the wording for a Thanksgiving/Yule Invitation by adding the date, time and location at the end.

As Nature spreads Her quiet beauty across the landscape, We take time to cherish those close to our hearts and homes And look forward to the wonderful times that lie ahead. Please join us/me in giving thanks for Nature’s Bounty and For all the many blessings bestowed upon our lives.

May your blessings be plentiful.
